Olaf Cupcakes Inspired By Disney’s Frozen

It’s official… I am crazy for Olaf… The cute snowman character in Disney’s new animated film Frozen. The movie hits theaters Thanksgiving Day, in case you haven’t seen the billboards all over the nation. I shouldn’t get sidetracked, I am talking about Olaf here. He is also the main star of the “World Of Color – Winter Dreams” water show at Disney’s California Adventure Park. I had the privilege of seeing the premiere of the spectacular water show last week and was blown away. If you find yourself in Southern California over the holiday season, this is one show not to be missed, showing nightly from now to January 6th, 2014. Click here to see a short little video of the show I filmed with my phone, and read more about the beauty of this amazing water show. Either way, I was completely inspired by the cute, humble, and sweet character… I just had to show my love and affection for his COOL-ness. Here are the cupcakes I made, completely inspired by Olaf. Enjoy!
